2006 Ford F-350 Super Duty XL 2dr Regular Cab LB (5.4L 8cyl 6M)
I replaced a 1999 F250 diesel with this. The 18 inch wheels make the truck too tall and are expensive to replace. The CD player died in the first year. The truck is now in the shop and has been for the past week and a half with unknown engine problems. They just keep replacing parts and hoping for the best. Fortunately is happened just as the warranty was about to expire. This is a WORK truck, regularly towing 18,000# and the lack of reliability has me starting to shop for a different brand. I traded the 99 I had when it had 240,000 miles and had virtually no problems. Fuel economy is also poor.
Tow/Haul mode is a real good feature, helping with stops and downhill runs when towing heavy loads.
Option of smaller wheels and a MUCH more reliable engine.
